What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Can "Submissions" on the ABOUT page be removed or modified?

Postby cbel12 » Mon Apr 13, 2009 10:58 am

In a multiple journal installation, some journals will be accepting online submissions but others will not.

For those journals that will not accept online submission, registration as an author has been disabled in Setup 4.1 and the Information For Authors has been modified in Setup 5.7 to remove links to login and registration. However, unless I'm missing it in the documentation or previous posts to the support fora, I can't find any way to get rid of or modify the "Submissions" section of the page linked from "ABOUT" in the nav bar for these journals. Without some way to modify this authors can (1) click on the "GO TO LOGIN" link but will not find an "Author" role enabling them to submit or (2) click on the "GO TO REGISTRATION" link and either not be able to register at all or not be able to register as an Author. This is bound to cause frustration.

Have I missed something? Can this area of the "ABOUT" page be eliminated or modified? If the answer is no, this is an enhancement request I'd make so this area is either configurable or is changed automatically based on choices made in Setup.

Thanks,
Jeff Belliston

Hi,

I was wondering whether the bug reported by C. Jeffrey Belliston about Online subsmissions has already been resolved?

I am currently using version 2.3.4.0.

Regards,

I wanted to say that we have "solved" the issue via CSS,
with:

Code: Select all
div#onlineSubmissions {
    display: none;
}


See for example:

This was to be my next post as well. Where is the css file for each journal located? Or could this be done for all journals? None of our journals accept online submissions.

Hi Geir,

The styles/ subdirectory contains a number of CSS files that are loaded for your entire OJS installation. If you're looking to make a change that affects all of your journals, I could suggest the one called "common.css".

OK. Thanks. That did not do quite what I thought it would do. The link to submit articles online is still visible on the "About" page and on the sub page "Manuscript", except it doesn't do anything. This is just as bad because it makes it look like the site just doesn't work. How can I hide the link?

Hi everyone,

I just had a look at the CSS and what you probably want is:

Code: Select all
div#aboutSubmissions {
    display: none;
}


Which will hide the entire div element (and all of its sub elements, which is the list of links)

Regards,

Jason
